Re: Who can wire a automatic sliding gate motor?

What are the better brands of gate motors?

I see in T&T they sell, Tau, Atlas, Beninca etc.

But in the US, the brands are Aleko and US Automatic Sentry?

Can anyone give some feedback or opinions on the pros and cons, 9recommended) quality of the brands, etc. ?

Thanks

Aren't "hanger rubbers" the rubbers securing the exhaust to the frame?



Then I don't REALLY NEED to change that, since it isn't critical for the suspension right?

Thanks Hook.

Can lowering springs for (Eibach or Tein) Honda EK4 take the extra weight in the back?

Weight of audio equipment = 160lbs.

Additional weight of 2 persons = 300lbs

Total hypothetical weight in rear = 460 lbs.
